Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for health, it helps form and maintain bones, skin, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and boosts your immune system.

What are the Best Ways to Get Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that humans acquire through consuming plant and animal-derived foods. The highest concentrations of vitamin C can be found in fruits such as the Citrus species, which includes oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and limes; cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, and cabbage; root vegetables such as carrots, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes; as well as some vegetables of the nightshade family. Vitamin C can also be found in leafy greens, including collard green, turnip greens, swiss chard, and spinach.  While you may be getting some Vitamin C throughout your day, the average adult is not getting the recommended amount.

What are the Benefits of Vitamin C? 

The benefits of vitamin C are numerous, and most people are aware that it is an essential vitamin for optimal health. First, this vitamin helps to boost the immune system by helping to form collagen. Collagen strengthens skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and teeth. In addition to strengthening the body’s connective tissues, vitamin C also boosts the immune system by helping white blood cells communicate with one another. This is why vitamin C is such a powerful antioxidant and one of the most important antioxidants for fighting cell damage. 

What is Journey Leaf? 

Journey Leaf is an herbal tea bag with 500mg of Vitamin C and a more natural, non-acidic and more delicious way to support the immune system. Journey Leaf was developed by tea drinkers who wanted to take Vitamin C to support their immune systems but could not find a product that fit their needs. The year-long journey to develop a better Vitamin C product began in 2019 as we began to tackle this problem from within an herbal tea culture that prides itself in offering natural, functional, and delicious infusions. We've created a solution to Vitamin C that's as easy as brewing a cup of tea. Enjoy!
